Just as I feared, Labour have now swallowed the bait from the Conservatives and are following them into an election campaign based on personalities rather than politics.
The party PR machine has launched the above poster depicting David Cameron in the role of a fictional TV detective based in the 1980’s.
Detective Gene Hunt is a straight talking, no-nonsense, politically incorrect ‘copper’ with old fashioned values, who would bend the rules to get a result.
While it certainly sounds like the kind of person we should be electing into the role of prime minister – a leader – David Cameron he certainly is not!
The irony is, there’s always a danger some voters (Sun readers probably) might actually believe the portrayal and vote for Cameron.
We would then need a decent copper to investigate Gordon Brown’s political suicide!
